The topics discussed in the fifty-six Presidential ad-dresses preceding this one can be broadly categorised into those that are personal statements on personal research areas and those that are ‘tub-thumping’ about the Society or agricultural research in general. In recent times, Presidents Sykes ( 1986), Jury (1990) and Nicol (1992) have all thumped their tubs and exhorted the Society to change both in attitude and modus operandi. Alas, their exhortations have had little impact. They pointed the direction but we did not follow. So it is my intention to try again, for the simple reason that if we do not change, we will not survive as a Society, or maybe even as animal scientists.
